PHOENIX -- Phoenix police are asking for the public's help to locate a stolen statue and the person responsible for the theft.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson said a 4-foot-tall statue of a small girl was stolen from the Cancer Survivors Park at Willetta and First streets in central Phoenix sometime between 8:30 a.m. Friday and 11 a.m. Monday.

Thompson said someone broke the bronze statue from the base. All that remains is the shoe, which was securely anchored to the ground as the base.

The cost to replace the statue is estimated to be about $12,000.

Anyone with information about this incident, the suspects or the location of the statue is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6141 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.

The small park runs down the middle of First Street from Willetta Street to McDowell Road and was established through the Richard and Annette Bloch Foundation. There are a number of bronze statues of people in the park.
